  “’Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.’ And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority/power, and not as their scribes.” (Mt 7: 24-29)

     Jesus taught the people (including us) in a different way, “and not as their (our) scribes.”...

Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? Every one who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep, and laid the foundation upon rock; and when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house, and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But he who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation; against which the stream broke, and immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” (Lk 6: 46-49)

So let me “dig deep” today, in heartfelt prayer to, and communion with, my dependable Foundation and my Rock, our one-and-only Lord Jesus Christ. He invites me not only to “call” to Him, saying, “Lord, Lord…,” but also to “do” as...

For we are God’s co-workers (συνεργοί); you are God’s field, God’s building. According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building upon it. Let each (builder) take care how he builds upon it. For no other foundation can any one lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Cor 3: 9-11)

How dignifying and exciting is this fact, when I have the ears to hear it: God has many “co-workers” and “builders” in His great and small works-in-progress, including me. I am called to growth and development, having been given the one reliable foundation, which makes true progress possible; “which is Jesus Christ.”

Today let me embrace this great fact, that I not stand in place, nor go around in circles, preferring my own foundations...

Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth; break forth, O mountains, into singing! For the Lord has comforted his people, and will have compassion on his afflicted. But Zion said, ‘The Lord has forsaken me, my Lord has forgotten me.’ Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have graven you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me. Your builders outstrip your destroyers, and those who laid you waste go forth from you. Lift up your eyes round about and see; they all gather, they come to you.” (Is 49: 13-18)

 

This week we will remember the tears and grief of the sisters of Lazarus, not unlike what Zion says here, “The Lord has forsaken me, my Lord has fo...
